Oh...and I would not really call my regimen "ineffective" seeing how I now run marathons asswipe. Oh, and I said I lost 3 pants sizes. I am complaining about not melting fat off certain areas. God, how ineffective my workout must be. Let me cry because I am just a girl. That can probably out-run your ass.


I didn't call your workout ineffective; YOU did. You're the one with the back fat problem, not me. In your OP, did you ask for help in marathon training, or for fat reduction? Congrats on your running progress as it sounds very impressive. But we didn't gather here to talk about no races, did we?

I'm going to say this simply in the hope that it penetrates (that's what men are good for, right?). If you want to lose fat, start strength training. Your whole body, not just your legs. Because then, when you get your diet correct, the weight you lose will primarily fat, instead of lean body mass. A portion of that fat will come from your back. Did any of this sink in?

So you can call me names all you want. I'm a big boy and my feelings aren't easily hurt. But you gonna try something different or do you wish to continue on your ineffective (for fat and weight loss) program?

The choice is yours.


I have been heart ing you so hard in this thread.

In to learn more about how to deal with this problem area. I'm still waiting for someone to give some good advice that actually makes sense and not just some "appropriate calorie deficit and strength training" nonsense.

Pfft...as if that's the answer to this kind of problem.

Joffie - take off your bra and the appearance of back fat will just melt away.

Aim for the butt crack, and move up 4 inches and then 3 inches to the left and right. Using shotgun shells will be more effective at guaranteeing a hit.

You cannot target any specific fat on your body. All you can do is lose fat and your body is going to lose it from some places before others.

Most of mine sits on my belly, so it's been quite noticable as I've been losing it these past few months.

Women seem to carry back fat, especially around their bras. I HATE THAT. Nothing works on it. It just grows there one day and it stays. I honestly think it is an, "age thing" . Or it is hereditary in some women. It's where i carry fat.


I used to believe that, too. I was about 35-ish and got to my goal weight of 130 pounds, but looked like the Michelin Man from the back. I thought I was doomed to look that way, but NOW I know it's because I had too large of a calorie deficit and didn't incorporate strength training.

Now I'm pushing 41. I eat about 2300 calories a day. I lift 3x a week and run 3x a week. And not a roll to be found.


This!!

Strength training is EVERYTHING.. I'm 168lbs, no back fat and none of that ugly a-- bra back fat either. Your story is a great example of why ladies need to do more strength training!

And like I said in the last thread continued here:

SQUATS
ROWS

With dumbbells, barbells and in conjunction with healthy eating and exercise. Watch fat all over melt away..

Pretty much this. I've rarely seen someone argue so much when given advice.

Just to be clear, OP made a post a few pages ago where she listed some things she's going to do based on the feedback...so while she was a little argumentative and resistant early in the thread, she's come around.

Good for her.

I have a friend that did get rid of her back fat by mostly running and a calorie deficit. And no weight lifting other than body exercise. She looks fantastic after being an obese teen. Her solution is a bit radical. She became an extreme expedition leader - did Chadar with me and has walked across China. She just works out 12-14 hrs a day. She also works as a sheep farmer and does huge stints of physical labor with the animals.

Weights are not the only solution; just the most efficient use of your time.

Did she apologize for calling people names?


I hope she has success, I truly do.
